What is it?

From the Citizen Soldier side: I had the joy of attending more Army National Guard training last weekend. I really do enjoy the training (most of the time). One of the things I still haven't been able to get used to is some of the stuff they call "food" that they serve us.

I mean, after all, we're in the United States of America...and in California. Did you know that if California was a country, it'd be about the 7th largest country in the world? Wow.

But look at the shit they served us for dinner...

Now, I know there's a cop from Texas who already post a photo and ask for the readers to give it a caption.  But, this shit taste as bad as it looks...so go ahead and try.

Already been eaten once.

Dude! I can only think of gross captions, so I think I will pass.

Well, I can identify the cornbread and broccoli, but the rest of it looks like something my dog threw up. Did it taste that way too?

Unrelated- I got to work with my first Mess Kit Repair soldier last week during FTX. He was a SFC, and I learned a heck of a lot from him. I think maybe that MOS changes people after a while, because he was a little disconcerting at first. But maybe that was just the soldier.

Did you actually request the "no-fat, no-taste, no-style" serving or do they just sling it to you as you run past?

[who recently discovered that hospital food has improved but still no green jello! :(]

Looks like the recycling program in CA is really taking off. Ugh.

CI-Roller Dude said...

CoffeePot,- Nope, nobody could eat it once.

Sakar, Yes, it looked like that, but didn't taste like that. It is a good way to loose weight though.

Did the SFC show you the Mess Kit Repair Hand Shake?

Pax, Even hospital food would have been better than this crap.

PG, Recycling program? The wild animals won't even eat this stuff....

1. Mix the contents of unlabeled #10 cans found at the back of the unrefrigerated food storage locker.
2. Be careful not to hurt the 'Dining Facility' Manager's feelings.
3. If it tastes bad, will probably exit the body in some unpleasant fashion.
4. When we got hots, drank the bug juice and coffee, ate the desert and threw everything else away.
5. But then our mess sgt didn't have any feeling to hurt.
6. Even the Vietnamese wouldn't eat his stuff.
7. As an officer, had to order hots for morale. Refer to #2 and providing evidence to my superiors that I was looking out for my troops.
8. Still threw the stuff away.

Mr West, I did have a cup of "bug juice" (Kool Aid for civilians) but they even screwed that up and I couldn't drink it.
A few of the "jobs" we were on in Iraq had the "hot chow" sent out..but by the time it got there it was neither hot nor something you'd want to eat.
The corn bread was OK... better than hard tack.

Saker said...

Nope, I didn't learn any secret handshakes. I mostly just got assigned little 'projects' that didn't make sense at the time, but ended up being very useful later.

Looks like someone cleaned the bus from the night before and threw some cornbread next to it. dang. Sorry dude.
Hope ya had a granola bar in your pocket.

I'd title this masterpiece:
"Southern Bus Chum"

You should just be thankful you had a meal... So many hippies have nothing to eat.

On another note, you should have joined the Air Force. We really know how to eat right.

Dude, that shit looks so nasty. I only recognized what appears to be broccoli?

Momma Fargo said...

By the way...love your music on here. It makes that food stuff thingy on your plate look better, too. LOL.

Ally said...

Ugh, hmm 'Abandon Hope Suprise?'
No wonder my adopted's keep saying the type or brand of food don't matter . . just to keep sending boxes of it 'over there.'

Here's the shocker!!!

The food we had at ALL of the camps in Bosnia was actually pretty danm good.
The food we had on the BIG camps in Iraq was pretty damn good...

the food we had at Camp Gannon on the border of Syria---well, I lost 15 pounds there in just a few weeks.
